“TRIAL” is a new software program that makes it easier for facilities that must file annual Toxics Release Inventory reports to access all TRI reporting regulations and guidance on interpreting those regs. The software is available on EPA’s TRI Web site and is included in the software package provided to companies for the reporting process.

Also, a special research tool, “TRI EXPLORER”, is available on a link from the TRI Web page. It provides county-by-county assessments of toxics release data, and can be sorted by facility, chemical, geographic areas or industry, and at the state or national level. The program can be used to assess a facility’s progress in reducing toxic chemical pollution.
